Wind Power: Noise

Volume 472: debated on Wednesday 20 February 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what assessment the Environment Agency has undertaken of the noise produced by the WS 1200 wind turbine; when that assessment will be published; and if he will make a statement. (184114)

I have been asked to reply.

Under the Microgeneration Certification scheme, the Government are working with key stakeholders, including industry, to develop installation and product standards for micro wind turbines. These standards will address issues to do with airborne and structural vibration noise.
